Franchise Opportunity

Financial Information

Your Investment

Our franchise system provides a complete turnkey operation. Allowance has been made in the start-up costs for all franchise fees, training, assistance with site selection, shop-fitting expenses, legal fees, equipment, supplies and inventory.

Your exact start-up costs will vary depending on the location, size and other property factors and the equipment specification, but the initial investment to open a Mail Boxes Etc. store ranges from around £60,000 to £70,000. Up to 70% of this cost can be funded by a loan from a high-street bank (subject to status). Your initial personal investment could be as little as £25,000.

Need help raising funds?

It could be a lot easier than you think. As a trusted and established franchise, Mail Boxes Etc. is seen as a sound investment by most major banks who will view your application very favourably.

Many of our franchisees have already been able to secure as much as 70% of their funds through loans, meaning your own personal investment could be as little as £25,000.

What’s included?

As a Mail Boxes Etc. franchisee, you will benefit from:
Trading under a globally recognised brand
A diverse and resilient business model
Full training and induction
Marketing and operations support
Sales training and support with lead generation
Help finding the best location, or upgrading your current premises


Turnover for mature Mail Boxes Etc. stores generally varies between £100,000 and £600,000 a year, with most stores aiming for a 65% gross margin.

We also run a scheme where a referral fee is paid to our current franchisees who recommend a friend or colleague who goes on to purchase an MBE franchise.
